About the Work

“Combining photography and digital illustration, Doe is a work that represents the ethereal presence of wildlife in Thunder Bay,” says Corinna.

“Oftentimes when we commute from place to place, we catch glimpses of these beings between the trees, hidden in the bush behind your work, the coffee shop you love, or even just outside the park you walk. You could miss them if you blink.”
For staff and regular visitors to the Gallery, Corinna’s work also is a playful portrait of the deer that live and forage in the woodland surrounding the gallery, especially during the fall and winter months of the year.
